  • EXCLUSIVE FIRST LOOK: Harley-Davidson’s New XGR Flat-Track Racer. The XG is Harley’s next step. But there is no question that the changes are necessary to keep Harley in the all-American sport of flat-track racing.

    In an effort to replicate Indian's success, Harley-Davidson makes an unprecedented investment in its American Flat Track contingency.

When you need better hookup, you roll the rear wheel closer to the engine, making it easier for acceleration to transfer weight to the rear, where it can become strong early drive off the corner.
